Biodiversity Conservation is an undergraduate and postgraduate course at The Australian National University. We identify threats to biodiversity and how to mitigate these. In many cases there are no perfect or easy solutions to these problems, so the course is essential a group-think. We start with a typical landscape in which there are many threats to biodiversity (habitat loss, fragmentation, urbanisation, invasive species, etc.) and together with experts from many organisations (many of whom are potential future employers) explore possible solutions to these threats. Each student is required to document part of our journey in this blog.
